A man is talking to God. "God, how long is a million years?"

God answers, "To me, it's about a minute."

"God, how much is a million dollars?"

"To me, it's a penny."

"God, may I have a penny?"

"Wait a minute."

Time is relative, especially to the entity that invented it.

Good morning...

Another overcast day with rain to come. Jobs I didn't get done yesterday may get done today. Not going to commit  to any as one never knows how the day may go. The folks came and picked up their trug and as usual we stood outside and gabbed away the time. Good talk and good giggles. She is also a dog love and they board dogs for people going on vacation .

Bubble, thank you for the new start love pearls of wisdom. As you know there are some people that don't appreciate anything in this world. The song of a bird, flutter of butterfly wing, gentle breeze blowing on a hot day, and one could go on..

We are half way through the lock down/stay at home ruling, everyone will be so glad to get back to normal ,if there ever will be a normal.

Better scoot

Enjoy your day and stay safe.

A Busy Bubble this morning... looking good & great text. Funny how the memory of Marilyn singing that to PresKennedy is so vivid. Love the "gotcha" Wait a Minute...

Amy, we are chilly this morning & looks like a bit of winter heading our way. Not clear in my head how to cover my trug with a tall tomato plant (with blooms) right in the middle. With our wind it must be something that can't blow down & smash. I think the bucket the kitty litter comes in may be tall enough & then a blanket over that & clamps to hold it to the trug. That might work....have to think about it. I put in 4 packages of lettuce; mixed salad, Bibb, endive & oops, can't think of the other. I buried the packages along side each so will have to look. My daughter helped & said she wants a photo when they pop out of the ground.

Good Morning to ALL.. wake up!  Cats are fed, daughter off to have breakfast with a friend so I just may crawl back in bed to finish my sleep. Fitbit won't tell me how much I got so far so I'm pretty sure a little more won't hurt. Nice to see so many show up yesterday, and with good news, too. Happy Birthday, Gloria  :hb3:  :hb2:

Good Morning Everyfriend!

And now, a special "Good Night Gloria" to close out your birthday!

I'm off to the haystack.  My eyes have entered the slamshut stage and I'm ready to be taken over by the zzzzzs!  It's been a busy day!  I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy Spring day tomorrow.  And may God bless us, every one!

well another of those sleep les nights. but I thought of something funny to tell you all. the grand and great grands went fishing the other day. Acutely were snagging 60 70 pound spoonbill cat fish. they had cadien our just past 2 year old with them, he was in the back of the boat, when they pulled the first one in, he ran to the front of the boat yelling shark , they said if one had them  not Cought him he most likely would ran out the front the boat. that will be a good true story to tell him in a few years. I think I will go take a couple those Pain pills and see If I can catch a few of those  zzzzz's.

Amy

Good morning..
Lloyd, thank you for my morning chuckle. I can see why he would think that .
We are out of here in a bit to get groceries, then home to work about.

Shirley, buckets over your plants will work. A sheet that is resting on sticks will also work. I am tempted to plant some seeds in the one that has a cover made of plastic  just to see if I can get an early crop. Planting season starts around May 24 usually.

Phyllis, made your 15 beans soup with the meat and ran it to the neighbour as they are both under the weather and they enjoyed it.

Better  get my town duds on.

Enjoy your day and stay safe..bbl.

Good Morning Everyfriend!  I'm up and attem and chuckling at your little one, LLOYD!  I can see him in a few years, first denying that he said that and then laughing with all of you at himself!

It's almost time for the boinger so I'll have to make this one short!  After the boinger, the day begins with a bang.  Lots to do today!  I wish you all a good day...better than yesterday but not as good as tomorrow.

I've raced thru half a dozen times today & nobody (including ME) stopped to post. Getting all ready for daughter to head back to her home tomorrow. Will be quiet around here.

Still no Gloria to let us know how the birthday girl did yesterday (or was that today???) My days are running together.

It rained most of the night & day, down right chilly. Had to dig coats back out & now 'tis the season of winter/summer clothes. Tomorrow will have to prepare for an over night freeze for my tomato plants. Had a giggle about your "sheet" suggestion, Amy, IN THIS WIND!!!  I do have clamps to hold the lining down that hangs over so can use them to stretch a tarp over to hold down. The bucket over the big guy will keep the tarp from slapping the seeds. Worry-worry...

Lloyd, my Fitbit told me I got one minute LESS than 3 hours sleep so I am heading to bed early tonight. Too many things going on, like all the propane leaked out of the motorhome, need to find out why before filling & then might as well get it DEwinterized. Also time to have the pool cover taken off & that means lots of extra work (and money). Yard needs extra maintenance, filled a trash bag with dandelions yesterday (nearly every day) that I dig out, those pickers are so handy, but was not supposed to bend over for a week after each cataract removed. Is a losing battle with so many blowing their seeds from the banks of the river. I don't use sprays because of birds & cats. Had a visit with the doctor that will "write the scrip for glasses" in several weeks, have not found a place that can make them the way I need. Much to long for tonight's thinking. Drops in eyes are a pain to do... and so on. Loved the shark story. "Hi" to Nancy for me.

Good night to Every Friend, God Bless and somebody remember how to sprinkle the angel dust over us like Joan used to do...PLEASE! Love ya, Shirley

JaneS

Well, I must be invisible!  SHIRLEY said "nobody" was in here all day!  And since she talked to LLOYD, I must be "nobody".  I always knew I was a nobody but I never realized that was my name!

Good night Everyfriend from NOBODY!

Good morning..

Overcast and it may give us some liquid sunshine today.

Not sure if laundry will be hung out  but will wait and see how the day goes.Jessie has cleaned up his breaksfast but Babe is sleeping in this morning. Topped their meal with eye of round and some ground beef making in more inviting for them.

Jane,one thing you will be is a nobody. Just ask your family, friends , co -workers, neighbours ,girl guide troops, internet friends , my son and ME!! Met with them yesterday and it sounds as if he is going to go back to work on Sun, leg is sore but he can sit comfortable now and not be in so much pain.

Cleaned Peepers cage but left it where it was, keep checking to see if she is ok and yesterday had a voice message on the phone and every time I would listen to those she would make herself known in box car letters.......but all was silent this time. Time to put the cage away.

Lloyd, shared your story of the "shark" with the kids and they also had a good laugh..thank you.

Jenny, how is Michele doing? Is your arm/shoulder healing ?

Gloria and Joy hope your days are better.

Better get moving here

Enjoy your day and stay safe.

Shirley

Okay, Jane..... since I posted at the same time you did, I had to re-post & didn't mention that you snuck in!  :-\   Bad ME! We've gone back to winter & I am totally unbalanced because I had turned my head to spring/summer & this old lady isn't that flexible anymore!

My daughter is on her way home so the house feels a tad lonely. (Two cats outside & Tiger went to the basement for less noise.) Her car was packed to running out the tail pipe... seriously. I sent her home with some stuff that sooner or later will be hers to decide whether to keep or get rid of & figured no time like the present!

Will be busy today coming up with a cover for the trug/removable & replaceable. Looks like a whole week of iffy weather ahead. My world is full of that lime green color of new leaves popping out on all the trees. Even the redbud has leaves on the ends of the branches. My volunteer redbuds are gorgeous with blooms so solid on each branch they are a blast of color. Have some all sizes blooming. I pull them up & put in a pot & after a year I plant them where they can avoid the mowers. The tree next door is so prolific it's almost a menace, but since they cut down the "partner" tree on the opposite side of the yard, I wonder if it's seeds will grow like before. I have little ones growing all over, just water the ground around, take a long kife like my mother used to use for digging up flowers, and gently pull the little ones out of the ground (bare root), put them in a pot using the "root stimulator" like Mom did, & they grow like weeds. I've passed them on to family & friends for years.

And now I need to get busy. It's chilly in KS, wet but not snow in my part. Enjoy your weekend.

Good morning from the Interior! Nothing new here; everything weatherwise is progressing steadily but slowly, as is my leg. I hope Gloria is doing well, and I imagine she's doing a lot of resting. I hope Jenny and Michele are both healing and resting as well.

We've begun our morning text again around here, which is nice. We had stopped for a while, but now it's nice to check in again to know alls alright in our small corner of friends and neighbors.

Amy

Shirley, even cardboard box over the plant ,held down by a stone/brick would work. Will send you photo of what Kyle has made if my tablet behaves .

Patricia, good to hear the texting has started again. I see our neighbours out and about so they must be feeling a bit better.

Bread is out of the oven and laundry is almost done....and I do feel a nap coming on..

Shirley

But, Amy, what if it rain & the cardboard box crushes down on my tomato plants??? I do have a problem with "what ifs"......haha... With the taller tomato plants in the center it's not possible to just cover with plastic so must come up with a wind proof & waterproof tent. Thanks for the tips.... our wind is such a problem.

I'm still sitting at the computer & been watching Prince Phillip's funeral. I'm so sorry for the Queen to lose the one person she's been able to talk to and giggle with for 73 years, and know she won't be betrayed. Much as we love our kids, not quite the same.

Amy

Shirley, large garbage bag wrapped around it. We have carpenters bags and they are huge but don't need that size here now.

They had complete trust and respect for each other.....very rare to find anymore.

Let the fire go out  but think it is time to make it come to life again. Sun is off playing somewhere else and doesn't want to come out to play today.

OK, SHIRLEY, I'll let you get away with it this time!

This has been a busy (and exhausting) day!  Daughter Cathy picked me up to go to the Amish store today.  This is the first time we've been there since the shutdown and the first time I've done any real grocery shopping since Mar. 2020 when I broke my arm.  I didn't realize what it took out of me.  I came home and put away the frozen stuff and then took Mickie for a long walk.  We had lunch and I put away most of the rest of the groceries.  Then I realized I was just plain exhausted.  I made the mistake of walking past the couch and all those zzzzzzzs jumped up and grabbed me!  My eyes went into immediate slamshut and that was that!

I feel better now and after we have some supper, we'll do another walk and then loaf for the rest of the evening.  This is going to be a busy week coming up.  First getting ready for company, then entertaining company (they'll help.  It's my daughters) Then recuperating from entertaining.  If I don't spend a lot of time here, don't worry.  I'll be back!

Enjoy the rest of your day!
